Hi,

I have what I think is a memorial cross but not sure if would be Canadian or British. No name on the back, little bit of ribbon still attached. In searching I've found many with the maple leaf but none with the Kings Crown on all four points of the cross.

Any information appreciated.

Sorry Mary but this is not a Memorial Cross......

It looks like a miniature Military Cross (WW1) and bar that has been made into a sweetheart pin......

Will try attach a photo of a real Memorial Cross......

Thank-you Mike! Probably why I couldn't find one like this, lol.

Would this have been Canadian? Does this mean the bar isn't original to the cross? I forgot the size in the original post - it is small, 3/4"W x 1 1/4"L including the bar.

So glad to have a forum like this!

thanks

Mary
